 Rhodonite Gemstone Properties 


Design Possibilities

The perfect season? Perhaps it's two seasons: a mixture of spring's soft colors with autumn's warm ones. Rosy pink rhodonite with its dark inclusions is that perfect mixture. Rhodonite comes from Sweden, Australia, and the lush island of Vancouver in Canada. Something happens when you wear it. You feel relaxed and revitalized. When you use rhodonite in your jewelry, you offer your customers distinctively beautiful jewelry that has a lush vitality and serenity they'll be drawn to as soon as they see it.

Metaphysical/Healing Properties

Rhodonite does for us what paying attention to nature always does for us. It softens our needs. It helps us put petty things behind us. It reminds us that leisure is important and that there's a bigger picture we often lose sight of. We pay attention to small things like the petals of tiny white daisies, the gossamer wings of a dragonfly, or a leaf pressed so long into a stone it has become part of it. That's the experience and wisdom of rhodonite.
